  • Bailey is a Norman name, deriving from the Norman-French word baillis, meaning "official."  It is related to the word bailiff.  In 1991 Alexander Taylor Strange published a book about the Strange lineage.  He does not include details about the Baileys, even where they came form.  But the Bailey/Bayley lineage is associated with Ireland.  And family tradition in the Strange line reports that Frances' father David had immigrated from Ireland.

    Alexander Taylor Strange does give a basic statement about Amos Strange and his marriage to Frances Bayley.

    Amos [Strange], son of Edmond, a Revolutionary veteran, captain of a company and known to have been in several engagements, and to have enlisted three times. He was contemporanious [sic] with Col. Gideon Alloway Strange. [Ch 2 / p 26]

    As has been stated, Amos Strange was the son of Edmond Strange, and probably a half brother of William Henry Strange. He was born and raised in Virginia, and from that state entered the war of the Revolution, rising to the position of commanding a company having been Captain of Militia prior to the war. After the close of the war, he located in South Carolina, where others of the name, and most probably relatives were then living. Here he met and married Miss Francis Bayley, and to this union there were four children born .... [Ch 3 / p 27].
